Bill Maher Creates Petition to Make 4/20 a National Holiday

Bill Maher announced a petition on his show tonight to make 4/20 a national holiday. Take a guess what it would be honoring.

Maher even went so far to set up a petition on Here’s what he had to say:

Hi, America. It’s me, Bill Maher, from Real Time with Bill Maher – here for my very first time on Well, the first time since I signed the petition to bring back “The Gilmore Girls.”

Now that marijuana is legal in one form or another in 24 states and counting, I’m here to urge you to sign my petition to make 4/20 a national holiday.

We celebrate everything from Arbor Day to Groundhog Day to a National Day of Prayer. It’s high time we had a weed day.

Because if we can set days aside to pay tribute to trees, a rodent or a space ghost, we can certainly designate one day to officially recognize a true American institution.

Sign my petition and make 4/20 a national holiday.

And to make it sound like another classic national holiday, on his show Maher read from a book titled, ‘Twas the Night Before 4/20.
